Study on economic impact of 2018 registration deadline published

This summer, the Commission published a report co-authored by Milieu on the impact of the 2018 registration deadline under the chemicals’ regulation REACH.

Under REACH, manufacturers and importers of chemicals are required to submit information on the properties and uses of the substances they manufacture or import above 1 tonne per year. The third and final registration deadline, 31 May 2018, required registration for substances between 1 and 100 tonnes. This report assesses and, where possible, quantifies the impact on economic operators of registrations submitted for the 2018 registration deadline.
